Voice Of...The Proclaimers!

One of the world's best loved and most instantly recognisable bands - The Proclaimers - have just announced a string of summer shows in Scotland!  They'll be playing 4 special dates across the country, including Edinburgh Castle. Check out one of the promo videos I just voiced for the band - see below. Also, I was lucky enough to snap up tickets for the Edinburgh date, now sold out. That sure does make my heart fly....

Book tickets for remaining shows via The Proclaimers website.

A Sweet Story For Book Week Scotland...

Many of us love to discover a great story hidden within the pages of a battered, old book…but did you know that a wonderful story can even be hiding within the creases of a battered, old bookmark?

Once upon a time - a few weeks ago - we were visited by a lovely couple from Delaware, who revealed an unusual reason for wanting to visit us again. At long last, they told us, they would be able to replace the bookmark - crumpled, torn and pieced back together - that they had lovingly used since their last visit to Pittenweem Chocolate Company a couple of years earlier.

We were so pleased to give them a crisp, new bookmark - ready for a new chapter filled with globe-trotting adventures. Meanwhile, the couple from Delaware kindly left us with the old one as souvenir. Oh, the stories it could tell…

It’s Book Week Scotland! In celebration, please do share your stories about favourite books, bookmarks and reading neuks! And remember, our little cafe has a bookshelf and cosy, wee corners, ready to welcome book lovers, all year round…

Love A Cosy Scottish Read? Curl Up With The Christmas Sisters...

‘Comfort reading at its best, all wrapped up in a tartan ribbon. Sarah Morgan will make your Christmas!’ 

Is there a better time of year for curling up with a good book? We absolutely love autumn reading - ideally beneath a blanket, with curtains drawn, candles flickering, a luxurious hot chocolate and maybe a biscuit or two. So, we were beyond delighted when Harper Collins invited us to join their promotion of The Christmas Sisters, a brand new novel by best-selling author Sarah Morgan.  The best part?  It’s set in the snowy, winter heart of Scotland!

The publisher’s HQ imprint will release the book in the UK at the beginning of November and to get some of their favourite readers in the mood for this seasonal story, they’ve been sending out adorable pamper hampers. Each one includes an advance copy of The Christmas Sisters, our ‘luxurious hot chocolate with a spoon’ - handmade by the Pittenweem Chocolate Company, a candle from Isle of Skye Candle Company, refreshing infusions by Tea Pigs and a packet of crunchy, Border Biscuits.  

We’re looking forward to receiving copies for our cafe’s bookshelf too - look out for our preview and giveaways. You can preorder the book at Amazon. 

Also, if you’d like to treat yourself to our ‘luxurious hot chocolate with a spoon’, visit our shop - online or on the high street in Pittenweem!

Meanwhile, happy reading!
